Hey everyone! How are you all? How do you like the new website? I took a very much needed hiatus from blogging. Sometimes I really feel quite overwhelmed because I find it extremely hard to come up with original content for your guys. I’m not going to lie, I find it nothing less than exhausting trying to be creative, trying to functionally reevaluate my content, make it better, create more content, push the content on all social media platforms without getting BURNT OUT. It’s even hard when you’re on deadlines from every single angle.
I also took a bit of time out to explore the world of youtube. I was regularly asked about videos from readers and I personally believe in giving you guys what you want because if it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t have the opportunities that I am approached with daily. One thing I will admit is that I underestimated how HARD Youtube is. My youtube experience has given me a new found respect for youtubers. It breaks my heart to see and recieve mean comments on youtube because I know the hard work and dedication it takes to create, edit and sometimes even upload videos up onto youtube!
During my time out I realised that being creative is not something that can be done on call and yes, your creative juices can definitely run dry. I realised that it’s okay if you take a break to actually eat your food than to violently photograph it from every angle to make it look more aesthetically pleasing for instagram and social media platform alike.
Its okay to go somewhere and actually ENJOY the experience for once rather than taking photo’s through square camera frames on to upload it to instagram and make out to everyone that you were having the time of you life when you actually weren’t. Enjoying life for what it can be counted as one of the small but very necessary and effective things that help reignite that drive, reinstate that passion and inspire you to create good quality work.
I find that it’s very obvious when people just do things because they feel as if have to and not because they believe what they’re doing. I don’t ever want to be in the position where I upload a bunch of shit to keep up with the blogger Joneses.
THAT IS WACK.
